Amputations Needed Because of Table Saw Injuries

January 31, 2014

Every year approximately 40,000 people are injured by a table saw. In fact, of these injuries 10% of these injuries leads to amputations. That is 4,000 each year who need an amputation from a serious injury from a table saw. Although the SawStop technology, which stops the saw when it comes in contact with flesh, has been around for more than a decade many manufacturers have not adopted this safety feature. Indeed, some of the largest tool manufacturers have even rejected it completely. Many of these companies are now confronted with thousands of lawsuits.

Legal Commentary
From a civil standpoint, our firm has represented many of these victims who suffer from table saw accidents. We represent victims of devices built by a variety of companies such as Bosch, Ryobi, Makita Corp., Black & Decker, Craftsman, Delta, DeWalt, Grizzly, Jet, Kwikset, and more. If you or a loved one has been affected by any of these products we encourage you to consult with one of our table saw attorneys as soon as possible. Although no dollar amount can make up for permanent injuries as result of table saw accidents, a successful civil claim pursued against the responsible party will ensure that the victims are not burdened with costly medical expenses, and will hopefully compensate them for their pain, suffering, and lost wages for time missed from work.
